A joint venture including Ocean West Capital Partners, Tiger Alternative Investors and Realty Income has completed the disposition of a seven-property logistics portfolio totaling more than 7 million square feet throughout the Sun Belt and Northeast.

Ponte Gadea shelled out $905 million for the industrial properties, public records and SEC documents show, which reveal that Realty Income acquired its stake in the seven assets as part of its merger with VEREIT.

K&L Gates LLP represented Ocean West and Tiger in the transaction, while Alvarez & Diaz-Silveira LLP worked with the buyer.
